How do I know if a prime eligible instant video movie can be downloaded for viewing later? I read that you can not access the movie out of the country, but what if you already downloaded it? Can the movies I download with free streaming download be viewed on the plane? I'm a little confused about this newer feature. Please help, Thanks.

The download option only shows for a video when you are using a Fire itself. You won't see that option while looking via your computer.

Any video, if it has been downloaded to the device, can be viewed when there is no WiFi connection.

Which Fire do you have? Videos that have been purchased or rented can also be downloaded.

Oh ok. I was just looking on my computer for the eligible movies. I will check it out on my Fire later. I have the HDX 8.9 64GB. I don't watch that many movies on my Fire, but I am going away and traveling a far distance on a plane so I want to have some good movies on hand. Yet somehow my Fire's space is at the halfway mark already with audiobooks, all my auto-rip music, and fun apps/games. Thanks for your help. Any other tips/suggestions when taking a long trip on plane with your Kindles is welcome. I will take this device as well as my Kindle Paperwhite 2.

On the HDX, tab Videos, then use the Menu icon at the upper left, (looks like 3 horizontal lines) scroll down, and you will see Prime TV to Download and Prime Movies to Download.

You'll need to allow enough time when downloading, 10-60 minutes depending on your connection speed.

For long plane trips, time at the airport etc, remember that you need to know your battery life. it would be very disappointing to be halfway through the trip and have no power left!

Different people have different results, so check it out before you go.

I travel alot and felt better having a charger with me. There are cheaper alternatives now that weren't around two years ago when I got my first Fire (i can't even find the one I got, but this is similiar...just something to think about....

Thanks for the tip. I do have a small Halo that I will make sure is fully charged. I will also have wifi off the entire flight which will help.

iPad owners can only watch Prime instant streaming videos on the Amazon Instant Streaming app. We cannot download videos without paying to own or rent them.

Plus, you can only watch instant streaming Prime videos on wifi.
